To reduce production and delivery times, we are sometimes forced to make last-minute specification changes. Please be aware that those changes might not be reflected on these product pages and images.

HIGHLIGHTS

6061 double butted and technoformed aluminium frame with a cable channel underneath the down tube. A tapered head tube provides steering precision. Graceful lines with smooth welding. Equipped with mudguards and kickstand. Reflective decals for extra visibility.

Normally, wheels are attached with quick release hub axles for easy removal – essential for fast wheel changes in the Tour de France but not so desirable when leaving your bike in the city. All models feature security hub axles which are undone with a wrench.

All CROSSWAY URBAN models come with disc brakes; Disc brakes offer superior braking in all weathers compared to conventional rim brakes as the braking surface is positioned near the centre of the wheel awayfrom puddles and dirt.

The URBAN range comes complete with mudguards and a kickstand, so you are ready for anything the moment you leave the store.

All CROSSWAY 100 up to XT-EDITION models feature tyres with reflective strips on their sidewalls, improving visibility on the road.

The biggest difference between the two CROSSWAY families is the suspension. The URBAN range is equipped with a rigid fork which saves significant weight – on the CROSSWAY URBAN 500 and XT-EDITION, we use an even lighter carbon fork instead of the already lightweight aluminium fork. The URBAN range doesn’t require adjustable stems or suspension seat posts, again reducing weight.

SMOOTH WELDING

This is a process we use to give a nice flat finish to our welds instead of the scaled, 'stack of coins' effect TIG welded joints often have. The welder uses the welding torch to go over the joint twice, helping to smooth out the filler material. It takes a lot of skill to do this, but it delivers strong and smart-looking frames that have the appearance of a carbon fibre frame at first look.

RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

We use a minimum of 6061 grade aluminium on all our bikes. It’s particularly well suited to being shaped with our hydroforming and technoforming processes, which allow us to vary the wall thickness to create double-butted tubing and complex frame shapes. It’s also an alloy that welds easily, and once it has been carefully heat treated to maximise strength, it means we can create strong and lightweight bicycle frames for you to enjoy.

TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM

Manipulating the tube shape and thickness greatly impacts the appearance, weight and functionality of our aluminium frames. One technology that allows us to do that is TECHNO FORMING, where plain aluminium tubes get mechanically formed by using an external form and an internal metal core. The result, beautifully shaped tubes with varying wall thickness, ready to be used to create our technoformed aluminium frames.

F-MOUNT

Being able to turn your bike into an all-weather commuter that has mudguards and other fittings can be a real plus, in particular when riding on wet and perhaps muddy roads and tracks on a regular basis. To make fitting easy, some of our bikes are F-MOUNT equipped. These integrated fittings mounts make adding mudguards fast and simple. Please note that some bikes require model-specific mudguards.

K-MOUNT

Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a Merida kickstand (or any commercial kickstand).

C-MOUNT

Similar to our F-MOUNT, where various fixing points for mudguards are part of the frame offering, the C-MOUNT equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated, making fitting fast, simple and reliable. The C-MOUNTS are an additional feature that improves the day-to-day versatility by adding loading capacity to your bike, ideal for commuting and shopping trips. Please note that some bikes require model-specific rear racks.
